We'll be live at 5pm ET today for the weekly Sky Sports Friday Fight Night broadcast.

This week in the main event, Scott Lawton moves down in weight to face Leva Kirakosyan for the vacant European junior lightweight title.

Lawton (27-5-1, 6 KO) has in the past faced and lost to Amir Khan, John Murray, and Jon Thaxton. He's never really gotten a breakthrough victory, and at 33, it's sort of now or never. It's the first time he'll be fighting at 130 pounds, too, spending his entire career up until this point at 135 and 140.

Kirakosyan (31-5, 21 KO) is an Armenian based in France. The 36-year-old hasn't had a notable win since knocking out Carl Johaneson in four rounds back in 2007, after which he lost the European title to Sergey Gulyakevich by unanimous decision.

Gulyakevich is actually fighting on the undercard in a six-rounder, and Matthew Hatton is taking a stay-busy fight with rumors floating that he could be facing Saul Alvarez on the Mosley-Mayweather undercard on May 1.

It's kind of do or die for both tonight as far as title shots go, so expect a couple of guys fighting to win.
